In the past two years I only traveled once and that was to Holly's wedding in Chicago. That is unusual for me as I really enjoy going places. Sure I was kind of busy growing a tiny human, but that's no excuse. This year things are going to change. Here is the lineup so far:

Feb - College reunion in Louisiana (Party like it's 1991-1994!!)
Apr - Training in Minnesota (If there is still ice in that lake I'm gonna pout.)
May - Conference in New Orleans (Laissez les bon temps roulez!)
Jun - Conference in Connecticut (Maybe there is somewhere in this state that doesn't suck)
Aug - Conference in DC (My old stompin' grounds)

I can hear you all now. Finally! Maybe now she'll talk about something besides that baby!!
Ha! Now I'll talk about how much I miss the baby. And I wonder what the baby is doing. And guess what the baby did while I was gone. Blah, blah, blah...........
